The Masters in Sports Rehabilitation is a unique offering from the University of Melbourne, designed specifically for exercise physiologists who wish to further develop and extend their practice excellence. It draws together a suite of selected subjects from the fully online Master of Rehabilitation and Master of Sports Medicine to create an innovative program designed to build on expertise in both the rehabilitation and sports performance contexts.

Program overview

The Master of Sports Rehabilitation has been specifically designed for motivated exercise scientists who are seeking to extend their capability in sport and exercise rehabilitation while assisting athletes of all ages and abilities to optimise healthy exercise participation and drive best performance.

The course is also open to doctors, physiotherapists and podiatrists with a minimum of three years’ relevant sports performance and injury management experience.

If you are passionate about sport, health and exercise and want to enhance and drive best performance from teams and individuals, and assist injured athletes to optimise healthy participation and best performance, then this course is for you.

This flexible, 100% online course is taught by industry leaders via an interactive and engaging online learning platform.
